The Township Public Works Department is planning a snow lift in downtown Tavistock starting in the evening on Thursday February 20th 2020, going into Friday Feb 21st 2020 morning.  Due to weather variability and the need for the Public Works operators to be available for snow events, the Township cannot provide significant advance warning for snow lifts.  They are planned around downtown snow accumulation and the weather forecasts.  The snow lift will be from approximately 11pm-6am.Image result for snow truck cartoon

Potential for Significant Flooding This Weekend

Widespread precipitation is forecast across southwestern Ontario, beginning Friday morning and continuing until late Saturday. Current forecasts call for a combined total over the two days between 60 - 90 mm of rain, with the bulk falling on Saturday.

Ground conditions are generally wet and/or frozen. With the lower forecast amounts, streams and rivers will be out of bank in some areas, and inundating low lying flood plains. Should the higher precipitation forecast materialize, more significant flooding could occur.

At this time, levels are expected to remain below those experienced in February 2018. Fortunately, there has yet to develop any significant snow pack this winter in the watershed, and any flooding will mostly be driven by rain received. The current estimate of water equivalent in the snow is about 10 mm.

Peaks should develop beginning early Sunday morning in upstream areas (Mitchell, Stratford, Tavistock, Ingersoll) and during the day and into the early evening Sunday in London. River flows will remain higher than normal for several days into next week, increasing the safety risk around rivers and streams throughout the watershed.

The public is encouraged to exercise extreme caution around all local waterways. Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery and, when combined with cold, fast-moving water, pose a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses.

The UTRCA’s flood control reservoirs at Fanshawe, Wildwood and Pittock Conservation Areas are at seasonal levels and will be operated to reduce downstream flooding. UTRCA officials are monitoring the situation, and will report on any changing conditions if necessary.

Don’t let your holidays go to waste

Choose products with less packaging to reduce the amount materials sent to the landfill


During the holidays, gift wrap and excess packaging can have a significant environmental impact. Residents can make a difference in making an effort to choose products with limited packaging while also choosing packaging and gift wrap options that can be recycled.

Follow these simple steps for quick and simple recycling this holiday season:

  • Remove all tape, plastic film, twist ties and other objects before recycling cardboard packaging.
  • Break down and flatten all cardboard boxes, with bundles no larger than 75 x 75 x 20 centimetres.
  • Wrapping paper can be recycled, with the exception of foil-based wrapping paper.
  • Remove all ribbons and bows. Save and reuse for next year where possible.

New this year, bulky Styrofoam from packaging can now be dropped off at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility and Woodstock Enviro Depot. Beginning January 4, 2020.
